Significant pain relief of cervical spine arthritis and 18 years migraines after epidural procedure. Very, very satisfied.
in Glen Rock, PA |
About 15 months ago Dr Furman assumed care for me from another doctor. I was being treated for cervical/spine neck pain. I've found Dr. Furman to be one of the most patient-oriented doctors I've known. He has always taken the time to listen to my symptoms, evaluate potential causes, and offer treatment options he thinks are appropriate. His after-care is outstanding. I'd recommend him to anyone.
in York, PA |
Dr. Furman and the entire staff at OSS are easily the most friendly and courteous groups I have encountered in any enterprise of any type. This true at all occupational levels at OSS. Just prior to leaving after a short inpatient stay, the lady charged with room custodial services stated to me "Thanks for choosing OSS." One sign of a well run operation is the attitudes of personnel. At OSS it almost seems there is an ongoing contest for who is nicest to the patients.
York, PA |
Dr. Furman is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in providing pain management. He listened to my problems and had several plans of treatment, depending on my willingness. After treatment I am now mostly pain-free in the problem area and am very pleased. I would recommend him to family and friends.

Dr. Furman is the answer to my husband and my prayers. My husband had a "freak" accident and fell into a brick wall. Up until the time we found Dr. Furman, our lives were totally turned upside down. Because of God and Dr. Furman, my husband now lives a "normal" life With his extensive treatments and research, and his expertise in RFA's, my husband lives as near to pain free as he possibly can. We drive well over one hour one way to get to OSS, and would drive farther if need be.

Dr. Michael Fuhrman was amazing with my grandchildren they absolutely love him. Also with myself he was very thorough and took plenty of time to explain and try to help my situation. I highly recommend this doctor to any new patients!

I have known Dr Furman since 1996 when he worked at KDV Orthopeadics. He has administered 3 epidurals to my lower back in the last 8 years while operating at OSS here in York, PAand each one gave me significant relief. He is very professional and thorough and I would highly recommend this surgeon to anyone.
in York, PA |
I have had a number of epidurals in my back and recently had an S1 injection. Dr. Furman is very good at explaining the procedure and the location of where he will be doing the injections. He is aware of the patient's pain during the injections and is very gentle doing the injections. I have had other doctors at this facility do injections over the years and they have not taken the time to really explain the procedure or try to be aware of the patient's discomfort during the procedure.
in York, PA |
Dr. Furman initially treated me for hip pain using hip injections and is presently treating me for an SI joint problem that requires an injection. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Furman as a doctor but also as an person. He has a scintillating personality that is uplifting for a patient coming in with pain and earned my confidence in my first visit to his office. He has a caring and kind, respectful, skillful & gentle bedside manner that I so appreciate in a doctor. I just love Dr. Furman!!
in Dover PA |
Dr. Furman has given my husband his quality of life back through his expertise in administering both epidural injections and Radio Frequency Ablation. His office staff are extremely helpful, courteous, and efficient; getting back to you in a very timely manner with scheduling, etc. The facility in which he works is absolutely topnotch from the personnel to the physical plant.
